Re: How's Allegiant doing on routes with competition?

G4 and UA compete on AVL-EWR, and UA added mainline as soon as G4 entered the market. That was about 18 months ago and both carriers are still on the route. G4 will soon compete with NK on AVL-FLL and (kinda sorta) AVL to Tampa (G4 to PIE, NK to TPA) and AVL to Orlando (G4 to SFB, NK to MCO).
